Business journalist Joe Mont, who worked for Compliance Week and TheStreet.com, has died.
A Compliance Week story states, “He was an award-winning journalist who was twice ranked on Assent’s ‘Top 100 Conflict Minerals Influence Leaders’ list.
“A graduate of Suffolk University, he began his 26-year journalism career at the TAB Newspapers, then became Editor in Chief of the Bulletin Newspapers chain of publications before heading to TheStreet.com, where he covered personal finance.
“Earlier in his career, Joe was also co-publisher and editor of Cigar Lifestyles Magazine, where he once famously traded advertising space in the publication for a cigar store wooden Indian, which he proudly displayed in his home. Besides cigars, Joe’s hobbies included photography and movies.
“Joe was a true old-school newsman. If not for his trademark scally cap, Joe would have probably donned a fedora with a “PRESS” card sticking out of it. He had a keen wit and could talk on a variety of subjects both inside and outside of compliance. He frequently offered counsel and direction for the team and was adept at getting people to see all sides of an issue. Often a devil’s advocate, Joe pulled no punches when you asked his opinion.”
